Mexico is a country full of culture, history, and spectacular landscapes. Home to the Mayan and Aztec Empires, the architecture and legacy left behind is nothing short of magical - amongst the incredible ruins are the massive pyramids of Teotihuacan, the overgrown cities of Monte Alban and Palenque, and of course the phenomenal Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
However, although Mexico's ruins and history are a major draw, there is much more to the country. Mexico has a vibrant culture, from its famous mariachi bands, the stunning artwork of Diego Garcia and Frida Kahlo, and the unique customs and way of life of the Tzut'zil Mayan people in San Cristóbal de las Casas.
The food of Mexico is iconic all over the world, and you'll be able to sample burritos and chili con carne alongside more unusual dishes such as mole sauce made from cocoa beans, and of course Oaxaca's favourite snack of fried grasshoppers! Mexico is also famous for tequila, made from the blue agave plants that are ubiquitous in the central regions.
If that wasn't enough, Mexico is one of the most stunning countries in the world, with the cactus-filled deserts of the north, the colossal Sumidero Canyon, the jungles of Palenque and Yaxchilan, and the pristine idyllic beaches of Tulum. Mexico is high on the list of many travellers' favourites list, and has many wonderful and varied highlights to explore!
